This unique one-story villa has many special features, thanks to exacting realization of Asian-influenced decor and gardens. Simplicity and a sense of order; materials and colors reflecting nature; symbolic salutes to the elements; earthy meets elegant in this haven designed to promote balance, spiritual renewal, and a calming of the senses.
Upon arrival, guests are greeted at the pagoda-like entrance by a striking pair of oriental stone guardian lions. Each room has its own thatched rooftop, seen as a series of huts from the outside. Inside, each ceiling is covered by woven reeds, and fretted glass doors open for lots of natural light and delicious garden views. Air-conditioned comfort is found throughout the home, along with cool marble floors.
The formal living room invites convivial togetherness in a peaceful atmosphere. Polished teak, neutral tones embellished by aqua silk pillows, a border of textured river stones around the seating arrangement, and a display of oriental collectibles are among the distinctive touches. In the family room, another set of sofas and chairs is on hand for relaxation, while a billiard table provides entertainment. Both the living room and family room feature a large-screen plasma television. The dining room has an oblong table, with ten elaborately carved wooden chairs. The modern kitchen contains streamlined cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, including an automatic dishwasher, and granite counters. A half-bath is conveniently located to the living areas.
Enjoy the wonderful Caribbean climate in the meticulously designed outdoors. A thatched-roof gazebo furnished for lounging or dining overlooks two terraces. One terrace holds the sparkling infinity pool with chaise lounges, while the other contains a rock pond with fountains, adding the tranquilizing sound of burbling water to the landscape. This is a splendid setting to bask in the sun, take an invigorating swim, read a book, and simply unwind and admire the gorgeous scenery.
